Well it is official, Kelly has won his 9th World title. Perhaps because we all knew it would happen today, maybe because it is his 9th title, who knows, but this win as monumental as it is, seemed a little lack luster.
That said, Kelly has done something amazing, he has surfed the best competitive year of surfing on record and done it at a time when he should be on his way out of the top seeded surfers. Kelly has proven that age doesn't play a factor when you have the drive, focus and raw ambition to win. congrats Kelly! You are the king!
I wonder if Kelly will go for the 10th next year?
